The rendition was spectacularly beautiful, especially for a 75 year old woman.  This is what she said in response to his incredibly stupid question:

"People are going to have their opinions. You know, about whatever.
And all I can deal with, all I can deal with right now is what my heart
says. Okay? I believe in fairness,” Knight explained. “I believe in
truth. I believe in all of those things, and as far as this is
concerned, I grew up with the national anthem. We used to sing
it in school before school started. We used to say prayers in school
before school started, and we just don’t have that anymore and I’m just —
I’m just hoping that it will be about our country and how we treat each
other and being the great country that we are.”

 “You know what? Nothing good comes easy. And I would hope that they will understand as I do that we have a better way to do this than to be angry and why is he doing this or why ain’t she doing that, you know? For me, it’s just for me about respect. If we start denying the anthem, there are so many people that have died for our country and there are so many people in my family that are still part of, you know, just standing for the country, they are in the services and that kind of thing and just to not say that if you really listen to the lyrics of the beginning, you’ll understand that. We have fought hard for a long time and not just in wars.”"

My kinda Lady!

Yo!  Don, you dumbass, her "career" was made while you were still soiling your diapers.  (And, by the way, ya know, it's time you stopped doing that.)
